Great little tour, samples along the route. Eli was our tour guide and was very informative and engaging. $12.50 per person for the tour. You get a signature coctail at the end, worth the price. Less than an hour tour, stay as long as you like at the hospitality bar.

Thank you so much for your review. Some of the bus tours do stay a short time as they are on a tight schedule. I hope you one day visit Curacao again and you will be able to go on one of our guided tours. Enjoy your Chocolate liqueur! More

A self guided tour offers an understanding of the process in creating the "familiar blue" liquor. The tour does not take long at all, and at the end you are treated to ta taste test - quite refreshing on a hot summer day!

Having a car for a couple of days made putting this on our itinerary worthwhile. The self-guided tour tour is informative but takes only ten -15 minutes. Afterwards if you so desire, one can buy cocktails or ice cream. The gift store sells numerous sizes and types of the liqueur produced as well as the intriguing cooling spray lotion (said... More

Unfortunately we had a rather rushed visit to this great little distillery, we were on an organised tour with our cruise ship and our guide rushed us round in about 20 minutes. More time is definitely needed to explore and learn more about the distilling of the traditional drink of Curacao.

Did you know that most Curacao liqueurs aren't even made in Curacao? The tour was interesting, fun and very nice that it is located in a Dutch colonial mansion. Do the guided tour, it is definitely worth it. It includes a delicious cocktail!

We were on a tour of the island and was taken to the distillery. Because it was only a quick stop so we only had time to do a self guided tour. This consisted of reading huge poster type boards with the history and other info. It was informative but I much prefer to hear it audibly. The self guided... More

Thank for your criticism. We can only learn from that. It is a shame, as you mention yourself, that you didn't take more time to do a Guided tour and experience the cocktails. It would have changed your review significantly. We do not offer an audio tour as that is expensive to develop, we are only a small distillery. Most... More
